Bishopshall reopened in September 2016 after benefitting from a full renovation and refurbishment, as part of an ongoing programme of investment in the boarding provision at St Leonards.


Situated at the centre of St Leonards stunning grounds, Bishopshall is a spacious and comfortable girls' residence. The House provides an environment in which students are able to flourish both socially and academically. The students are hard working, fun loving and very friendly and together they help create a welcoming, genuinely homely atmosphere.

The Bishopshall community includes an international mix of day and boarding students and the girls enjoy a strong feeling of community spirit. A balance in life is considered very important and ample common room space allows the girls to organise regular social events, like pizza nights, international cooking evenings, games events and big screen movie nights, making it easy to form friendships across the whole student body.

Study bedrooms, each with regulated internet access, provide quiet areas for reflection and academic study. In addition, there are study areas in the house, and collaborative study groups have proven to be very popular. Girls here are able to develop as individuals and gain independence in a caring environment which prepares them well for life after school.
